He expressed satisfaction over the progress in the work taken up from Yellampally to Mallannasagar, especially the completion of tunnel works for 78 kms out of 81 kms. He asked the Irrigation department officials to take up works related to dams, canals and distributaries simultaneously for the benefits to reach people immediately.

Irrigation officials set up special cameras at Medigadda (Kaleswaram project), Sundilla, Annaram barrages, all part of the Pranahita-Kaleswaram-Mallannasagar project that were connected to the CM Camp office for a virtual inspection of work being done there. The chief minister called it a momentous occasion to see the irrigation work being carried out day and night. He expressed hope that the work would be completed by December 2018.
